Florida Freedivers was founded in 1999 by Mike and Cherryl Damms of South Africa. They brought their love of freediving and spearfishing and access to great gear with them and grew it into a business out of their garage in Clewiston, Florida. By 2004 they moved Florida Freedivers to a shop in Palm Beach County and continued to expand and upgrade.
Then in 2012 Jonathan and Kelsey Dickinson purchased Florida Freedivers from Mike and Cherryl. Jonathan loved spearfishing and had owned Scuba Works in the past. He was also teaching freediving as an Fii instructor at the time. Kelsey was a graphic designer and entrepreneur with her own design business. Their passion, background, and skills together helped grow Florida Freedivers into the amazing shop and training facility it is today!
In 2015 we opened doors at our new 7,000 square foot store. We educate over 250 new freediving students each year. Our expert staff with a passion for everything spearfishing and freediving is here educate you on the right gear for you.MEET THE TEAM
